    The-UK-Guy Tea anyone ?

    After filing my W2s this year I was just thinking to my self how desperate I was to own a house. It seemed like such a great idea at the time I purchased.
    I paid 35,000 in interest and 50000 in property taxes for 2008.
    Is that about the norm or did I take it in the shorts ? Just wondering how much fellow UPSers paid last year.
    I live in Los Angeles County.

    I paid $1179 in property taxes for one acre in the suburbs. House size is 1600 square feet. And I am mad about that, I hate taxes.

    No interest (house paid for) but did pay $2,800 property tax last year. 2800 sq feet house + 28 X 36 shop - 5 acres - 365 feet of Mississippi River frontage. I can't even imagine what kind of house it would take to have a $50,000 property tax on it.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    There is no way in hell you paid $35K in interest and $50K in property taxes.

    I paid $4K and $2.5K respectively and, no, I don't live in a cardboard box out by the freeway. I have a modest ($90K) condo which is ideal for me.

    So you paid 85,000 out of pocket for housing only,and your a fired ups driver who chokes on tacos and drinks beer?

    BLACKBOX Life is a Highway...

    What's not to believe? He said he was part of MJ's Security Detail. I'm sure he was paid handsomely for manning the warning buzzer in MJ's bedroom.

    Quite obvious the 50000 figure was a mis-type. My taxes are $3600 a year. High here in WI.

    I wanted to pic of property worth 50000 in property taxes lol

    i think most of us knew it was a key typing issue therefore you will need a 3 day type along to improve your typing methods.
